Subscribe to CBS alerts

American reality TV show ARMED AND FAMOUS is facing a lawsuit over a case of mistaken identity. LYNDSAY CLEMENTS, 22, of Muncie, Indiana claims her flat was raided by five to eight police officers who then restrained her in handcuffs and subjected her to questioning about two people she did not know. The now-cancelled CBS show saw celebrities including Jack Osbourne, LaTOYA JACKSON and Erik Estrada acting as part of the Muncie police force. In the claim filed last week (ends02MAR07), Clements insists the police search was illegal and excessive, violating her constitutional rights. The claim also states Clements "also holds liable all those associated with filming and airing the show." Armed And Famous producer TOM FORMAN, police chief JOE WINKLE and attorney CHARLES CLARK declined to comment on the allegations. The show was axed in January (07).
